MOTION CONTROL: Opening up the market for innovations in the automation, medicine and electronics equipment industries, HEIDENHAIN Corp. presents a new generation of rotary encoders with IP 64 protection, absolute position-value formation and functional safety, all within a 35 mm diameter housing size. These small rotary encoders are known as HEIDENHAIN’s 1000 Series and designed to be especially useful as single-encoder measurement feedback systems in safety-oriented applications.HEIDENHAIN’s safety-oriented position encoders with functional safety provide two independently formed position values via a serial EnDat interface. They are certified according to the EN ISO 13849, EN 61508 and EN 954-1 standard for performance level d, safety integrity level 2 and category 3, respectively. The EnDat 2.2 version of these new absolute rotary encoders with serial data transfer offers a singleturn resolution of 23 bits, and a multiturn resolution of 12 bits. The supply voltage range is from 3.6 to 14V.
Eight new rotary encoders round out HEIDENHAIN’s 1000 Series including

Others refer to it as the Connected Industry, the smart factory concept, M2M, data extraction, and so on.
